Have you ever tried capsaicin cream?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.


yes no help. also biofreeze as well

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 8 months ago.
Wish I had some other suggestion, BBSB but except for a prescription for pain medication from you doctor I just am out of thoughts
Customer: replied 8 months ago.


no comment about the ptsd and the knees swelling up .same time as the sinus inection.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 8 months ago.
Sorry but I thought we were focused just on your sinuses. I really don't see any connection between the knee swelling and a sinus infection unless somehow you retain water with that. And you just referred to the PTSD almost in passing there--was there something more about that?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.


no just scared o surgery... give me your box your box..... I know you are tired.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 7 months ago.
I understand about the surgery but talk about it with your doctor BBSB. I think you'll do fine even if you have to have it.. Love you

Customer: replied 7 months ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 7 months ago.
The insurance is a good one--what did the ct show?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.


ok here is what the paper says.can explain in layman's terms.


 


1.moderate disease left frontal sinus. partial opacification bilateral ethmoids, mild mucosal thickening peripheryof the right maxillary sinus.


occluded right omu. nasal antral window on the left which is patent. moderate partial opacification of the left maxillary sinus.nasal septurn midline. Sphenoid sinus has cyst small. 3x3 mm.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 7 months ago.
So no mention of the polyps?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.


sorry i didn't put that in there it did say there was polyps on the left and right side. when i did asked the radilogist he really couldn't tell how bad. but i can see them in the mirror.so can u translate the other.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 7 months ago.
The occuded omu means there's no way for that sinus to drain. You seem to have fluid and infection in several of your sinuses
Customer: replied 7 months ago.


ok but now it's draining blood and infection isn't that good. well I will let you go. My face hurts really bad.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 7 months ago.
The draining is good, yes. Say hi to BillyBob
